London, United Kingdom – PixelEspresso today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of MapNap version 1.1, a major update to its easy-to-use geolocation-based alarm app designed for the iPhone and iOS7. MapNap makes commuting less stressful for sleepy, playing, reading, chatting, or otherwise preoccupied commuters who don’t want to miss their station or stop, especially when it is dark outside.

MapNap uses the iPhone’s GPS in turn-by-turn driving mode to watch the user’s current location and notify the user when geofence around the tracked destination has been crossed. This is much more reliable than using ordinary geofencing apps like Reminders, which notify the user only after a certain amount of time has passed since crossing the geofence.

MapNap features:
* reliable location tracking and arrival detection that works in the background
* turning destination tracking on and off with a tap on the destination icon
* local notifications, sound and vibration on arrival
* tracking multiple destinations at the same time (when unlocked)
* using GPS only when tracking a destination to extend battery life
* quick and easy addition of new destinations and setting up geofences around them
* stopping all tracking with a single tap of a button
* support for metric and imperial units

New in version 1.1:
* MapNap is now free to use for a single destination
* One-time in-app purchase unlocks unlimited destinations
* Current users get unlimited destinations unlocked automatically
* Improved reliability of arrival detection
* Tracking can now be activated by tapping the corresponding destination icon
* Improved general responsiveness of the app

* There is a new orange tint on all controls to match the main icon color
* Icons are used in all cells and buttons to aid readability
* Added a button to send email to Support from Settings
* Added a button to open MapNap website from Settings
* Added a button to open MapNap press kit page from Settings
* Version is now displayed at the bottom of Settings
